Chongsheng Three Pagodas, Dali
(3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Built over a thousand years ago, Chongsheng Three Pagodas allegedly helped scare off the area's pesky dragons. The surrounding area is well maintained, with lots of greenery and a pond reflecting an image of the pagodas and providing an ideal photo op. There are quite a few steep steps to climb here, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of drinking water. Use our Dali itinerary planner to visit Chongsheng Three Pagodas on your trip to Dali, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
